The New York Times reports on Canadian families who take in refugee families as they resettle into the country. “Across Canada, ordinary citizens, distressed by news reports of drowning children and the shunning of desperate migrants, are intervening in one of the world’s most pressing problems. Their country allows them a rare power and responsibility: They can band together in small groups and personally resettle — essentially adopt — a refugee family.”
Though these refugee families became refugees through hard circumstances, they are now being welcomed and some of their worst hardships are over. The Lord takes evil and redeems it for good.
